, marine snipers in afghanistan say they need better weapons and ammunition. we talk to one reporter who is embedded with marine sharp shooters in action. but first over a career spanning more than 60 years few have earned a more formidable reputation as an analytical thinker than harold brown who was the nation's 14th defense secretary during the carter administration. a true prodigy he earned hi doctorate in physics from columbia university when he was just 21. he started his career at livermore lab in california and eventually moving to the pentagon where he became the director of defense research and engineering then air force secretary and eventually defense secretary. his ability to handle a staggering workload are legend including read and annotating 400 page briefing books overnight. during the career brown shaped fighters like the f-15 and f-16 that remain the air force's backbone fleet today. and championed jointness among the military serv before the failed iran hostage rescue mission convinced others to follow. now 85, brown continues to serve on the defense policy board and

with the marines. maybe we can talk about how is the national guard and dod resources and capabilities integrated into the command and control at the fire and also the supporting ops centers whether it be the gac or other centers down there. maybe our military personnel can talk about that, or ray. >> it's important to note that we are the supporting effort to cal fire and we get called in when they are basically out of assets. we are working for cal fire, they are the incident commanders, we follow their coordination, typically we're the last ones in and the first ones out. we do have an on-going relationship with cal fire, i'm in contact with cal fire all the time. we have good situational awareness what's going on in the state of california. they normally put us in an alert stat us so we're prepared to respond in an attack mode. i don't often work with chief chaney in southern california, about a month ago we had 9 aircraft at our peak working fires throughout northern california if that answers your question. >> any other responses? >> i wanted to touch -- can you hear me now? i wanted

as the command control because what we have here in the marine corps is similar to the navy. we have the installation, the regional installation command and also partners with the operational foresite. we allow the operational foresight, we maintain those but then we coordinate, cooperate, with the operational foresight once the call comes in for support. so we're able to do that obviously through memorandum of understandings and we have agreements and our wing operating orders allow for the fact the operational control, at least under operational response, maintains with the operators. the third aircraft wing maintains operational control but we send our operatives out to be controlled by the civic sight. we're comfortable with that and that's matured a lot in the last couple years. >> talked a lot about command and control and agreements and moving resources. one other question that came up yesterday we were discussing yesterday is how do communications occur specifically with regard to when we start talking about air ops and moving air resources around, how do we ensure that

but these days he's an expert on the region's unique marine life. >> the advantage of the waters around malta is that we're right in the middle of the mediterranean, there's virtually no major industry here, no major rivers washing toxins and waste from the inland into the sea. and for me personally as a diver, i think it's great that there are no industrial fisheries operating here. >> but the crystal clear water does have one drawback -- it contains few nutrients. so divers around gozo won't get to see many fish. and many of the wrecks are just too far down. one way of creating more underwater attractions is to sink decommissioned ships. thomas zurawski documented the sinking of the first ship off gozo, 13 years ago. he and a team sunk the former ferry xlendi. their plan looked promising. but down on the sea bed, things went wrong. >> in the beginning we had to learn the hard way -- all we did was open the valves and let the vessels sink, keeping them in position with tugboats to nudge them into place. but unfortunately, some of them turned on their sides or even on their heads, which meant

. by that point we knew we were wrong but my marines were being sent and to not go was intolerable to me. and of course that's when everything went wonderfully in terms of losing my parents and losing my friends through that entire tour. i left for 16 years. you get money for being there 20 but i walked because they knew that that sense of responsibility was inescapable and i would never be able to not watch television and see the marines go in and if i were capable, if i were still able to justify not going with them despite the fact that i had every reason in the world to justify not going with them. i had a wife and a child and no one to help them in my absence but the danger is, you begin to feel like you are somehow important to it, that somehow your abilities, scarce as they are, make you useful and that to turn away that part of your life is to betray a great expectation you know the marines don't care, one colonel n., one colonel out, the machine always repairs itself. it has a lot of platelets, but you have to imagine for at least a moment that you are unique, that somehow you b

for joining us, admiral. (applause). from secretaries and generals to marin county search and rescue over there to nert members, it's a great mix of people and i think that integration is crucial because when we're preparing before during and after a disaster response, everyone in this room has a role to play in one way or another. and it's a great mix. and having been a former fire fighter this topic is important to me. when you think about one point, 1 million fire fighters around the country, they take 2 million calls a year or more to help people in times of need. 63,000 wild fires get beyond their initial attack capability every year, burning over 6.7 million acres. there are over 95 percent effective, they do a great job, but every so often you get that season or that issue that is going to escape or go beyond their ability to stop it right away and right now currently the u.s. forest service that helps provide a lot of air resources and seasonal fire fighters is at the point at the end of that season where every pay period they have to justify keeping those air aviation contract
